Last week we received a twitter message from a long time member asking us if we were OK, because we have not had any updates recently.
Yes, we are fine and thank you for thinking of us!
We have really been tied down for the past two months in a number of Celtic Radio Projects meant to make our site better, faster and more reliable.
* New Broadcast Server
- we consolidated 3 servers into one super fast broadcast server that contains our studio and database services. This has allowed us to direct stream Celtic Moon, Celt-Rock-Radio and Highlander Radio directly from our studios. This opens our channels up to the tens of thousands of songs we have in our music library - hence a better listening experience for all!
* 3 TB Network Cloud Drive
- Part of the reason why Celtic Radio has been online now for 12 years is our backup plans. Our new 3 TB cloud drive will allow us to keep backup copies of all of our work in case of a major system failure or error.
* Highlander Radio Improvement Project
- We have recently taken 5 years of work in the form of specialized playlists and transferred them to our flagship channel. You should start to notice a great improvement in our selections through out the day.
* Social Media Feed
- This was a huge project to bring Celtic Radio into the world of Social Media. Hey, it may not be facebook, but we feel our unique niche of music and community will keep our members interested until the next big thing comes along!
So, a BIG THANK YOU for the members and people that financially support our site. We just could not continue to invest the time and resources needed to keep the site and channels going without your personal help.
Look for regular updates soon, but for now, we need a little break to recharge our batteries!
